This has been a Mike F kind of weekend! Here to the left is my first foray into machine quilting. I haven't finished the hand-part of the binding yet, and still have threads to tie and trim, but if you don't look too closely at the stitch length, you'll see that it isn't half bad!
The machine quilting above was done a stout quarter-inch from the seam line. On this project, I stitched in the ditch. I even put the binding on completely by machine and zigzagged the edge down, just as instructed. It was fun!
this post. I'd divided the HSTs into groups of sixteen. Under Mike F's guidance and inspiration, each day I press, trim, and assemble the HSTs into a block.
If I can keep on with this, in just a couple of weeks, Thing Two will be ready to be bordered, quilted, bound, and given away!
Lori, my interest in this project has been rekindled to the tune of one new block per day.
The list of WISPs is dwindling, Mike, and I'm hoping you'll stick with me a little bit longer. One of these days we are going to have to look at the real cadre of UFOs!
